How to Lower Blood Pressure for IgA Nephropathy PatientsHigh blood pressure is a common complication of IgA Nephropathy. It can make the kidney disease get worse. Without appropriate treatment for IgA Nephropathy, it can cause further increase in blood pressure. This is a vicious circle. How to lower blood pressure for IgA Nephropathy patients?

Healthy lifestyle

-Proper diet

IgA Nephropathy patients with high blood pressure should limit the intake of sodium, because it can further raise blood pressure. In order to reduce the workload of kidneys, they should also restrict the intake of protein and choose some high quality protein to eat. Moreover, they should limit fat intake. If their blood potassium level is not high, proper potassium intake helps lower blood pressure as well.
